Preventive Services in NYC: Past, Present, and Future

Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at 8:30 am to 12:30 pm

Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang College 65 West 11th Street Room B500, New York, NY 10011

The forum will explore how preventive services have transformed the child welfare system and review the status of current preventive practices in combination with evidence-based interventions that will shape future services.

Join us as we reexamine our shared goal in Preventive Services in Child Welfare, to "make it as safe as possible for parents and families to seek and obtain the help that they need to protect children and stabilize families."
